Hope (Ford) is the happy married wife. Her sister Faith (Ripa)was fired from her soap opera gig and moves into her sister's home. Hope's husband (Ted McGinley) reminds me of Desi Arnaz's Ricky without the cubian accent. The three kids seem more like props for the two female leads, since the kids have NOTHING to do
My favorite episode is where their aunt died. Faith steals a ring she assumes is her mother's dfrom the deveased, however its another person's funeral.
The humor is not forced, just like fun slapstick with no message or heavy theme

Series: Hope & Faith
Airing Years: 2003-2006
TV Guideline: TV-PG-DLSV, TV-14-DL
Faith Ford plays down to Earth happily married Hope Shanowski whose tidy little world starts to unravel when her attractive ex-celebrity sister Faith Fairfield (Kelly Ripa) moves into her house. Hope is the more mature one, and Faith tends to act like a child.
Among Ford and Ripa we have Ted McGinley (Married... with Children) playing Hope's hunky husband Charley who is hellbent on kicking Faith out of his house. Nicole Paggi later Megan Fox plays the role of Sydney, Hope & Charley's oldest daughter. Sydney is very rebellious and at times dim-witted, after Fox takes over Sydney becomes more promiscuous. Macey Cruthird plays youngest daughter Hayley, who is very akin to Lisa Simpson, and often butt heads with Sydney over intelligence. Paulie Litt plays Justin the youngest and the oddball, Justin has an obsession with Frank Sinatra among many other things, and tries to avoid trouble at any cost.
Season One is a riot, among the situations you will see Hope & Faith attending anger management, working in a diner to pay their bill and many other miscellaneous adventures.
Hope & Faith is like a modern-day version of Lucy & Ethel, and is actually based on creator Joanna Johnson's real life.
Now for my review this set
Video: 10/10, the episodes are taken from HD prints and lack compression
Audio: 10/10, how clear can you get?
Overall, I recommend this set
Great job ABC and Lionsgate for putting it together :)
Created by Joanna Johnson, a long time actress on the soap The Bold and the Beautiful, the series is built on the relationship of the sisters, and there is excellent chemistry between the two stars. Ripa is completely in her element, playing a self-absorbed extrovert, basking in the glow of her own spotlight, while Ford is adept at playing the extremely conservative Hope, a woman who often scowls at things she finds distasteful. The two stars work very hard, and repeatedly demonstrate a flair for physical comedy, with a raucous food fight being just one of many examples.
Hope’s husband Charlie (Ted McGinley, Married With Children) is a nice guy, but desperately wants his sister-in-law out of his home. The rest of the family includes daughters Sydney (Nicole Paggi), and Haley (Macey Cruthird), and son Justin (Paul Litt). McGinley is very entertaining, and the others are also quite able when called upon.
The writing is generally good, dealing with a wide variety of situations, and featuring some original ideas.Read more ›
